After rescuing Prime Minister Šimonytė, Alpha Company has been exploiting intelligence and developing the next phase of operations. The Russian Patriotic Union, as the separatists call themselves, have suffered severe losses of men and materiel within Maksniemi, including 3rd Regiment commander Colonel Vaikšnoras. Separatist operations have been so severely diminished that Lithuanian Land Forces have reported no contacts in the area since our mission.
However, separatist forces have increased operations elsewhere in spite of those losses. The RPU 2nd Regiment is poised to pick up where the 3rd left off. Intelligence recovered from Colonel Vaikšnoras’ HQ included plans to move the Prime Minister to the 2nd Regiment HQ near Miroslavl. Based in southern Tauragé County, 2nd Regiment forces have also conducted two raids on Lithuanian Land Forces supply dumps this week.
The area is more developed and urbanized compared to prior areas of operations. There is a large civilian presence, and separatists garner significant financial and political support from the population. With virtually endless sources of financing, and considering the severe threat to regional government officials and business leaders, the 2nd Regiment has become an operational priority.
Alpha Company "WarEagles" is tasked with conducting an air assault to seize Antonov Airstrip. A base of operations for Russian Patriotic Union Forces in Tauragé County, this target must be captured to disrupt enemy activities in the coastal region.
First Platoon "Widowmakers" will form into two sections for the assault at Camp Squires. Alpha section will deploy near Shuvalki dam and destroy Objective Arson, an electrical substation. This must be achieved to disrupt enemy operations at the airstrip. Bravo section will land north of the airstrip and establish blocking positions to prevent an enemy counter-attack on the dam.
Once Objective Arson is destroyed, Alpha will link up with Bravo to attack Objective Backdraft. Secure the airstrip and prepare for long-term operations.

(a) Enemy use of booby traps and hasty IEDs is likely. AP mines are also a threat, but will likely be deployed situationally to avoid civilian casualties. Wherever you are, watch out for tripwires!
